Per Vognsen is taking a break from his usual gigs, like NVIDIA and Oculus, to start Bitwise. Bitwise is Per’s way to share his “passion and try to demonstrate by example how to build systems from scratch.” The kickoff was on Sunday, but you can watch the replay on twitch now, or sub to the YouTube channel to keep up with new material. The first project is going to be a language compiler. Other potential projects include Kernels, GUIs and fuzz testing! Per plans to stream one or two hours a day (or bi-daily). If you are interested in building systems, welcome to the gold mine. Read more about the project on Per’s GitHub.
